Wrapped in Poetry Scarf, "Africa Changes You..."

Honest to goodness girl crush.  This designer exudes sparkly grace and had us in tears within minutes.  A South African designer who lives between Cape Town, Paris and Delhi.  Her handmade pieces are fair-trade and employ women who are widows or HIV positive to embroider and complete the finishing touches. This workroom is one of the only ones in the area that have salary based employees. Sometimes the workers have days when they are too weak or ill to work but need a consistent income.  Namaste.

Each an every item is an art piece.

Handmade. Hand Embroidered. Handwoven and dyed. Wrapped in Love

Light weight blue wool with gold embroidery.  Detachable Tassel.  Final Sale.

"Africa changes you forever, like nowhere on earth.  Once you have been there, you will never be the same.  How can you explain the fascination of the vast dusty continent, whose oldest roads are elephant paths?  Could it be because Africa is the place of all our beginnings."
